AMD Ryzen 5 1600X – Battlefield 1
Battlefield 1 is the kind of game that doesn’t need any real introduction. The latest installment of the Battlefield series is as beautiful as anyone would expect and comes right out of the gate with full DX11 and DX12. EA and DICE did a fantastic job with their AAA WW1 shooter this time by implementing some key gaming technologies. We tested the game at 4K using Ultra settings and the DirectX 11 API.
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X – GTA V
GTA V is one handsomely optimized title for the PC audience. It’s scalable across various PC configurations and delivers an impressive frame rate. Rockstar did an amazing job with the PC build of GTA V and it comes with a large array of settings that can be configured by PC gamers. We tested the title at 4K with everything set to Ultra and 2x MSAA.
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X – Ashes of The Singularity
Stardock’s Ashes of the Singularity RTS title is a new take on the historic genre. The game incorporates several things that many PC gamers have been curious about and anxious to try for themselves such as Explicit Multi-Adapter Support and full Asynchronous Compute under the DirectX 12 API. We tested the game at 4K on Crazy Settings under DirectX 12.
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X – Watch Dogs 2
Watch Dogs 2 once again takes us on a hacking tour, but this time in the city of San Francisco. Using a very evolved version of the OPUS engine the developers should have a better grasp on things this go around than they did with Watch Dogs. The new engine incorporates several NVIDIA GameWorks technologies and is seen as one of the most graphics intensive titles to launch this year. We tested the game on a mix of Ultra and high settings at 4K (Temporal Filtering Enabled).
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X – Rise of the Tomb Raider
The latest Rise of the Tomb Raider title gets lots of graphical enhancements added by Crystal Dynamics and Nixxes, including hardware tessellation, increased anisotropic filtering, additional dynamic foliage, increased LOD, additional PureHair strands, sun soft shadows, and improved bokeh DOF. We tested the game at 4K under the DirectX 12 API.
